It’s been two years since the Bro-tastic adventures of Salem and Rios in Army of Two: The 40th. When EA announced the release of the third installment of the Army Of Two franchise with new characters (Alpha and Bravo) and a new engine, I literally jumped out of chair, bro-fisted myself in the mirror and played air guitar.
For those who missed out on the previous escapades of Salem and Rios, Army Of Two is a tactical Co-Op focused third person shooter.
Dishonoured is a stealth action adventure game with all sorts of great stuff to draw you into it.
You play Corvo Attano, the Empress’ bodyguard who fell from grace after he’s framed for her murder, and forced to become a renegade assassin out restore the rightful heir to the throne (the revenge is a nice plus side).
The setting is a fictional world that carries an air of steam-punk in its style, with influences from 17th century England and anachronistic technology amidst its dystopian setting. There is the spread of the plague that turns humans into infected beings that remind one of zombies. It’s a dark, sombre environment, all in all.

Punishing difficulty and intense strategic action? SIGN ME UP
As a gamer who grew up in the “Playstation” era, I have always heard but not ever experience the “Old School” era where games are made punishingly difficult in order to lengthen playtimes. With the remake of XCOM: Enemy Unknown by Fireaxis, who prides this game to be as challenging and punishingly difficult as the original; I jumped on it immediately and after more than several hair pulling hours, I fell in love with this game and the difficulty that comes with it.
The premise of XCOM is simple, intergalactic life has been found and they are NOT friendly, the leaders of Earth has decided to initiate the titular XCOM project; an army of soldiers and scientist dedicated to extraterrestrial warfare. The member nations has devoted money and resources into the project and YOU are in charge of making sure they are not turned into ashes by the invading aliens.
This game is a dunking good!
Let me be honest here and say, I’ve never been good at basketball virtually or in an actual court but NBA 2K13 has managed to hook me with its impressive visuals coupled with stellar gameplay elements that would appeal to both hardcore NBA fans and casual players alike. For those who do not know NBA 2K13 is currently the ONLY basketball game with an official affiliation to the NBA but instead of kicking back and enjoying the monopoly that they now have, the team at 2K games actually kept the pedal to the metal worked hard to deliver nothing less than stellar.
